uncanny antman does it again with another fantastic edit.the movie has had most of the useless talking and forced exposition removed. the movie now focuses on the decepticons searching for the last person to see the cube and megatron sams grandfather.they hyjack air force bases and even air force one until they realize samhis his grandfathers glasses,unknown to them bumblebee has secretly been tasked to be sams protector .
the movie flows nicely from begining to end and is only slowed down by some bad dialogue.
*there are a couple of scenes i would have removed just because they felt out of place.
1.@the car dealers they are checking out bumblebee ,then bobby(car dealer)says to mechanic that he hasnt seen car before and that its not one of his,very next scene he gives them details about the car and asks $5000(sam and dad had to have heard they are standing right next to him)
2.transformer in alley saying whats ups bitches or something like that.
3.awkwark scene where sams parents walk into his room sams mom starts asking him if he was masterbating.
other than that a fine edit.deifinately worth a watch
Foreword: I haven't seen the original in sometime, which I prefer for watching edits and I also didn't review the changes (log) ahead of watching, which I also prefer. I looked at the edit list back when I downloaded the edit, but I like to not know what I'm walking into; I don't watch an edit for a few months or more after downloading it.
What I liked: The intro change was nice. I liked that you redid the movie enough that I thought you might be including bits from the more recent films. It was a refreshing take on the first Transformer movie.
What I didn't: I believe that for what I think you were going for you could have cut down on some of the action. Also the scene right before Sam get's harassed by the Decepticon Barricade about the glasses it felt a little jumpy how quickly the girl shows up and even makes their "relationship" seem to unfold in an unnatural way later as the movie goes...but personally I'd rather take out that love element if it were possible.
Overall: I would recommend people check this out. This version sits better with me than the original release.
Extra: Keep up the good work! Would like to see you do this in better definition, or maybe release it in a better encode, which ever was the reason for the video quality.
Pretty awesome rearranging done in this edit, but this is the one transformers movie that I liked, and IMO too much was removed. More often than not the changes made in this one are pretty great, and maybe there is really no way to edit a movie with so much fluff in it, but it just seemed a little flat to me. With even less substance than the original, Megan Fox isn't an actress but her character serves even less purpose in this edit. Some things just happened with no build up or resolution at all. For example in this edit we're left wondering what happened to the Secretary of Defense, the two hackers, and the Sector 7 leader? Last time we saw them they were trying to get the radio to work.
I will say on the technical side, it was seamless.
Overall good things here, I'm just not sure what else could be done with this one.
The Edit is fantastic, I really like how you’ve arranged it, and changed the music in some scenes. But as a whole I think I’d still leave out more of certain dialogue and visuals (“What’s stressing, bitches?”, or whatever it is he says, Bumblebee dancing, Fat hacker Boy freaking out in the interview room, and Captain Obvious stuff like “It’s a robot”, “The ice is cracking!”, and “It’s going after the files!”.) What I also hate is annoying ignorant stuff like “Bring The Rain!” – no military professional would talk like that on a radio – and the fat hacker boy being able to see an embedded message within an audio file and be able to decode it in five seconds, complete with pretty visuals. Michael Bay lives in a dream world! (It’s not your fault it was written by a 12-year old). I’d just like to see an attempt to make it a bit more “grown up”.
SO, the Technical – 10/10, and for the movie itself 6/10. But with improvement the movie as a whole could be an 8 or 9. The original I was WOWED with at the cinema but I must’ve been wearing rose-tinted glasses, and still found myself embarrassed at certain scenes (plus I was with my 8-yr old nephew at the time), so in hindsight having seen the movie after it came out on DVD I was terribly disappointed. I haven’t even bothered to see ROTF.
Still a recommended download, thank you for putting the time and effort into this.
